US President Joe Biden’s Covid-19 symptoms “have improved” after a first full day of treatment, as informed by the White House physician. His temperature reached 99.4 degrees on Thursday evening and was given Tylenol, a fever reducer.
According to the official reports, a White House physician said “His temperature has remained normal since then,” O’Connor wrote, adding that his symptoms remain characterized as runny nose, fatigue, and “loose” cough. Biden’s “voice is deeper” and “his pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal, on room air.”
The report further added that O’Connor noted the President is tolerating treatment well and will continue to take Paxlovid, an antiviral therapy produced by Pfizer and given to patients with Covid-19.
Biden, 79, tested positive for Covid-19 Thursday morning, with mild symptoms. He has been fully vaccinated and twice boosted. The President is isolated at the White House. His aides said he continues to “carry out all of his duties fully during that time”.
